Indian at home!

I was at Costco the other day and saw this on the shelf! I’ve always wanted to try this. Ended up having this for dinner! It was absolutely delicious! Tasted like the cuisine at the restaurant.

I saw this while I was there at Costco, too, and thought it would go perfect with the curry. I think this is a new item. Never seen this before.

Bam! This rice was awesome, but DON’T follow the directions on the pouch. It comes out super mushy. I like my rice on the drier side. I had to make a second batch and added less water. The outcome was so much better.

Hmm, mixed veggies! Green beans, brussel sprouts, and purple onions. Seasoned with olive oil, garlic/Hawaiian salt, and pepper.

I added some purple onions to the curry mix. Mmmm! Added to the touch!

Curry! Good for the cold!

I’ve been under the weather the entire week. Thanks to my good friend- he suggested eating curry, as it’s a type of spice and is good for our health. It boosts our immune system (see article link below).

…So I did!

Today, I will review two different Japanese curries I had at two different restaurants.

Tonkatsu (aka pork cutlet) curry set from Menchanko Tei. This is part of their lunch special. It comes with toss salad. Very filling and VERY delicious!!

Curry rice dish from Goma Tei at Pearlridge. It was very spicy; I liked it! Yum!

Both curries were very delicious! I love Japanese curry in general. I’ve never tasted any curry dish that wasn’t good.

Here are some links I found about the curry spice and spices in general. They’re very good for us! We should have more spices cooked in our meals.
